Executive Committee election
The VicSRC Student Executive Advisory Committee (the Executive Committee) is made up of 15 students who are completing secondary education in Victoria. They are elected by their peers every year and their job is to govern VicSRC and act on the advocacy priorities identified by Victorian students at the annual VicSRC Congress.
You don’t need any experience to be on the Executive Committee, just enthusiasm and a commitment to making Victorian education better for everyone! Each year students around Victoria nominate and vote for their Executive Committee members.

Being a part of the Exec has enabled me grow as a person and express my voice with others. ...I've absolutely loved representing students across Victoria
Being on the Exec has opened my eyes to worldly issues that are prevalent within the education system. Working with like-minded people has taught me the power students have as a collective to make a change. VicSRC and the Executive committee has given me opportunities that I would have never dreamed of doing.
Being on the Exec has been life-changing... I could never have imagined what opportunities this would bring. I have met some amazing people and been part of some incredible change.
So what does the Executive Committee actually do?
In a typical year as an Executive Committee member, you might do one or more of the following:
Attend meetings with the Minister for Education.
Speak on panels to teachers and educators.
Advise the Department of Education on how to design programs or initiatives to best support students.
Attend Board meetings with the adult Board of Trustees.
Advise the VicSRC staff and Board on the strategic direction of the organisation and which priorities to focus on.
Be involved in a variety of VicSRC's advocacy activities
Sit on committees made up of different stakeholders in the education system.
And lots more!
